Crowley buys Maritime Management Services
Crowley Maritime said it has acquired Maritime Management Services (MMS), a Seattle-based company with experience in crew management for offshore oil and gas vessels, primarily in the U.S. Gulf, Singapore and Gulf of Mexico.
The addition of MMS to Crowley’s international ship management division – which provides all phases of commercial ship management along with full technical management and government contracting – further strengthens the company’s global reach in the ship management industry and now allows the company to service a wide variety of international and domestic customers with a pool of trained and experienced crewmembers ready for hire, Crowley said in a statement.
MMS offers crewmembers services such as visas, flag-state and immigration documentation; crewmember certifications, including Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STWC) and any client or operational area requirements; logistics, administrative and travel support. In addition to MMS’ Seattle headquarters, the organization also has a secondary location in Singapore.
